A - Cloudy golden in color with a very thin head that dissipates quickly to a very thin lacing. Difficult to see carbonation. 3.5/5

S - very sweet and tart apple aroma. Every so slight graininess. 3.5/5

T - sweet and tart apple up front. grainy wheat middle with a grassy hop finish. no lingering bitterness. almost a shandy like beer. apple juice mixed with wheat beer profile. slight pepperiness. 3.75/5

M - Lightly carbonated. Finishes very dry. beer disappears entirely from the palate very quickly. smooth while on the tongue. 3.75/5

O - not my typical style choice but a good beer nonetheless. taste like apple juice or cider mixed with a wheat beer. 3.5/5

Pours an orangy cloudy colour with minimal head.

Smell is very sweet all apple.......some bready notes but mostly apple.

Taste is very is at the forefront but its more subdued than the smell would suggest. Tastes sweet almost pop like. Good for a hot day.

Mouthfeel is fine for the abv

Overall its not bad. Its nice to see a variation....obviously its not as good as lots of other wheats...but its not all bad.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy golden, almost no head.

Smell: A lot of apple.

Taste: A lot more of apple. Very sweet. Not much wheat.

Feel: Super carbonated, feels acidic.

Overall: This might as well be an apple cider, very little wheat. Still taste and smells good. A nice change.

Poured into a tulip glass. Super sweet jolly rancher smell. Head dissipated quickly to nothing. Very sweet tasted of candy like apples but at the end you can tell its a beer but just subtly. I liked it but after two got a stomach ache.

Decent apple flavors, kinda of a mix between real and artificial apple flavors. Overall its really not that bad, a tad to sweet, but expecting worse.
